6:31 pm
serious about deficit reduction, i was willing to take a lot of heat from my party. and i spoke to democratic leaders yesterday. and although they didn't sign off on a plan they were willing to engage in serious negotiations, despite a lot of heat from a lot of interest groups around the country, in order to make sure we actually dealt with this problem. it is hard to understand why speaker boehner would walk away from this kind of deal. and frankly, if you look look at the commentary out there, there are a lot of proposals as to why it couldn't get done. >> reporter: and once again, here at the university of maryland, the president was very confident that there would be some type of agreement before the august 2nd deadline. this is shocking news, of course, to the state of maryland as well. we're one of those states that relies very heavily on the federal government. think about all of the military installations here.
